Menopause and Hair Loss

Hair loss is often one of those symptoms of menopause that catch women off guard, bot more than 40% of menopausal women experience it. Why don’t we talk more about it? Essentially, hair loss looks and works differently for women than for men. It doesn’t usually look like full baldness, but rather consist of subtler changes such as thinner hair, a wider part line, and more hair shedding. The impact can be rough on self-esteem, especially when combined with the other hormonal changes that are happening. So what causes menopausal hair loss, and what are your treatment options?

Hormones and Other Key Factors

The primary reason behind menopausal hair loss is the change of hormones – mainly in the levels of estrogen and progesterone. These hormones decrease, while hormones like testosterone increase. These dramatic shifts in hormones can cause hair follicles to stop working properly, stunting hair growth and resulting in thinning hair.

However, hormones aren’t the cause of menopausal hair loss. There are other key factors that could be playing a part in the thinning hair and hair loss of women experiencing menopause. These factors include nutritional deficiencies, thyroid health, and other medical complications that may be affecting you. Always discuss your symptoms with a doctor to get a professional medical opinion and help you understand your options better.

Identifying & Treating Hair Loss

Hair loss is often difficult to see before it becomes significant. If hair loss isn’t recognized soon enough, there may not be sufficient time for the treatments to have their full effect. That’s why we recommend that women who are going through menopause come to HRC for a complimentary evaluation. We’ll help determine if there are any warning signs of hair loss, and we can recommend a treatment from there.

The good news is that women’s hair loss is a treatable condition, and at HRC we can help determine the best course of action for your hair loss treatment. Depending on your needs, these treatments can range from simple lifestyle changes to topical solutions, laser hair therapy, hair replacement, and beyond.

For more information about menopausal hair loss treatment options, or to book your complimentary hair and scalp evaluation, call our hair loss practitioners today at 800-966-9505.

5 Ways You May Be Inadvertently Hurting Your Hair

Could you be accidentally harming your hair? You may be making these common hair care mistakes, but don’t worry! Being aware is the first step in regaining your hair health, and we also provide many treatment options for varying levels of damaged and thinning hair.

So let’s take a look at what hair care mistakes to avoid!

1. Overusing Heat Appliances

While you aren’t going to start going bald just because you’ve used a flat iron every now and then, it’s important to be cautious with your use of heat appliances. Daily use will dry out your hair and leave it brittle, damaged, and broken. If you can’t stay away from heat appliances, try to use the lowest heating settings as often as possible and limit use as much as you can. Look into alternative ways to dry and style your hair to keep it healthy and undamaged.

2. Styling it with Tight Updos

Again, the occasional tight braid or ponytail will not damage your hair irreparably. However, regularly pulling back your hair into tight styles can wear on your hair and also affect your hairline. The strain can eventually do permanent damage! Make sure that your updos don’t pull on your scalp. Looser braids, ponytails, and buns will allow your hair the room to breathe. Also, avoid styling wet hair in an updo, and let your hair down as often as you can.

3. Over-Brushing Your Hair

Brushing your hair too much can pull it out of your scalp, and can cause an increase in shedding. Try to be as gentle as possible when you brush your hair, and don’t use too many strokes to get the job done. If you have a habit of brushing your hair with a hundred strokes every day, it can result in damaged and even thinning hair! Additionally, be sure to replace old brushes as needed, since worn-out ones can do a lot of damage.

4. Over-Shampooing Your Hair

Shampoo is designed to get rid of all the grease and dirt that’s accumulated on your scalp, but too much shampooing can cause damage to the hair cuticle and sometimes even result in hair loss. Try decreasing the amount of times you shampoo your hair to every other day, or even to just a couple times a week.

5. Bleaching Your Hair

If you bleach your hair regularly, you will ultimately cause lasting damage. Powerful chemicals are stripping your hair of essential nutrients, making it weaker and less healthy. Eventually, bleach will cause your hair to become so brittle that it breaks. Try giving your hair a break from the bleaching, and if possible, ditch the bleach completely and find a different style that doesn’t require it for healthiest results!

The extensions that she wore on set for years eventually damaged her natural hair, stunting hair growth and contributing to bald patches. How has Jennifer dealt with her hair loss? Besides the usual treatments and solutions, she stresses the importance of moral support and a great group of friends she can rely on to uplift her.
